Jellagen on the BBC World Service

26/10/20

Jellagen were visited by the BBC World Service for their programme: People Fixing the World.

The radio programme looks at brilliant solutions to the world’s problems as they meet people with ideas to make the world a better place and investigate whether they actually work. In this episode, they focused on jellyfish and how this pest species can be utilised to better the world. They first meet GoJelly and look at the ways mucus from jellyfish can help solve the issue around microplastics in the oceans and if they can be used as a sustainable food source.

Finally, they visit us at Jellagen and interview our Founder and Chief Scientific Officer Professor Andrew Mears Spragg who explain the exciting possibilities Jellagen’s sustainably sourced jellyfish collagen can offer in the fields of cell culture and regenerative medicine.
